Be remembered for all the right reasons. All brands, clothing and accessories featured are available at Cave Shepherd.

Ladies, what are your plans for the Easter holiday? Will you be in church, attending a family picnic, hosting a casual brunch or just relaxing at an afternoon tea party? Whatever your plans, you should be impeccably dressed for the occasion.  This spring, bright, bold and beautiful colours are taking centre stage, so here are some tips to help you coordinate your fashion choices and ensure that your style stands out for all the right reasons.


 1.  Dress to suit the occasion

What is worse than being overdressed for an event? Being underdressed of course! Before you get dressed, take a minute to think about the event. Who is hosting it, where will it be held, what is the likely demographic of the attendees and are there any known social conventions?

If you’re heading out to church, or even to brunch, this white floral print Nine West dress is a perfect choice. Paired with all white Luz Da Lua handbag and shoes, and accessorised by Bijoux Terner, this outfit is the epitome of modest, yet sophisticated style.

If we’re honest with ourselves, ladies, when selecting an outfit, determining the type of event is only half the battle. Many times, we must also consider whether the event will be indoors or outdoors, on land or on water, daytime or night-time, or if we will be standing for extended periods of time. The answers to these questions will narrow down our choices.

Jumpers are well loved for their level of comfort and versatility and this orange Nine West jumper is no exception.  Worn with slingback flats and accessorised with trendy Cognac Loucos & Santos cross body bag and large ICCO accessories, this ensemble is perfect for any number of events both day and night.  

3. Dress to highlight your accessoriesdfch-009-edit-no3

Renowned fashion designer Michael Kors once said, “I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” Therefore, the right accessories will add an impressive wow factor and complete your look.

This yellow Sharagano dress shows that you don’t need to keep your accessories within the same colour gradient as your clothing to look fabulous.  These pink Loucos & Santos shoes and handbag, coupled with Bijoux Terner accessories, tie this look together with their striking contrast. 

4. Dress to reflect your best you

First impressions are lasting, and remember, this spring our aim is to be remembered for all the right reasons. When you purchase outfits you love, you will fall in love with them all over again every time you wear them. To achieve this, you should choose colours which dfch-034-edit-no4naturally complement your skin tone, styles which suit your body shape and clothes which are correctly fitted to your size. That way, your inner beauty will shine through to accentuate the outer beauty of the ensemble.

This well-fitting Appraisal blouse and pants is a classic example, paired with a multi-print Guess handbag and Luz da Lua heeled slipper. To top it off, the ICCO accessories simply highlight the natural inner radiance seen here.
